Receive notifications for important news about the coronapas

In an interview in

De Telegraaf,

Keijzer pointed

to the high vaccination rate.

She finds it "increasingly difficult to explain" that people with the pass must show that they have been vaccinated or tested in order to enter a cafe or restaurant.

Keijzer's statements were striking, because the cabinet speaks with one mouth.

A minister may be against a cabinet proposal, but must accept it if the Council of Ministers decides otherwise.

All ministers will then support the decision externally.

This message is being completed.
